My performance schedule is posted at http://www.dgans.com/gigs.html – new gigs are being added all the time.
As always, I’m in the market for house concert opportunities. If you see an open spot on my schedule in your general vicinity, let’s try to make something happen! And remember: word of mouth is a gigantic part of musicians’ promotion and publicity these days, so if you like my music, please spread the word about my gigs and recordings.
My recordings are available at http://www.dgans.com/discography/
Great thanks to Jim Dunlop for providing me with first-rate strings for all my guitars!
Thanks also to Rick Turner for creating the amazing guitar I play on tour, the Renaissance RS-6
